Queen Latifah stars in a new trailer for Lifetime’s upcoming Steel Magnolias remake.

The television movie is based on a play by Robert Harling, made famous by the 1989 film starring Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Dolly Parton and Daryl Hannah.

A contemporary remake, the drama focuses on six Louisiana women as they deal with the highs and lows of life.

This new version features an all-black cast including Latifah in the Sally Field role alongside Phylicia Rashad, Alfre Woodard, Adepero Oduye, Condola Rashad and Jill Scott.

“Queen Latifah, Phylicia, Alfre, Jill, Adepero and Condola are some of the most celebrated women in music, film, television and stage – and we could not be more thrilled and honored for them to bring Robert Harling’s poignant story about the strength of women to a whole new generation.”
